    Saturday 14th, out to the local boot sale this morning, picked up a nice collection of photos, showing a chap from what looks like his enlistment in the home guard (in Leicester) through to late 1945 when he was in the Royal Engineers, a ladies identity card, dated 1943 and listing her employment as C.D. Casualty Services (in a nice leather "My Identity Card" case, A Royal Welch Fusiliers badge, 2x sailors collars and a gas mask bag containing 1950/60's wound dressings.
    Out again tomorrow.
    Regards Gary

    You're Sten might have been a building progress of resistance people. The Stens where commonly build by resistance people cause it was fairly easy to make.

    Sunday 15th, just one boot sale today, frosty start but the sun soon warmed everything up, finds were WW11 GSTP WD watch (working), some dug up badges, civilian g/mask, a balence/scales made by the Savage Arms Company, 1940 dated RAF ? pouch, ammo box and a 1945 dated light weight g/mask bag.
    The badges were found by a metal detectorist in the Oxford area, he had a box of his finds, that he was selling at the carboot.
    Regards Gary

    Saturday 21st April,picked up a silver WW1 Services Rendered badge, a couple of ammo boxes and a civilian cloth g/mask bag. Also picked up a bag of badges, from a chap I had bought a couple of things off a few weeks previously, he wasn't selling at the boot sale, but he saw me walking around and said "you bought some books off me, do you want some badges also", so as you can see see from the second photo, this is what he had, some re-strikes, stay brights, some original, a nice Luftwaffe eagle and an unusual Turkish badge, which is on the remains of a fez (the fez has just been cut up for the badge only), top left of photo.
    Regards Gary

    Hi Glen, the secret is "be there early", there are many people at boot sales, who just buy up anything old looking, regardless if they know what is, and then put it on ebay or sell by some other means, so by 9 o'clock in the morning most boot sales have been picked clean of most of the interesting collectables.
    Regards
    Gary

    Yep I know Gary i am one of those people who get there early but i still cannot find anything worth while, i would be lucky to find something to sell on ebay (which i do). But i suppose it will help when i get a car so i can travel further afield so to speak
    Thanks, Glen.
